Ward Announces for Congress in PA-18
“With the support of my family and friends, I am announcing my candidacy to represent the hard working people of southwestern Pennsylvania in the United States Congress,” Ward said in a release.
Ward was the first woman to be elected to her state Senate seat in 2008.
The special election to replace Murphy was triggered by his resignation earlier today. The candidate will be selected by a conferee process set by the bylaws of the PA GOP.
